Troubling accusations against former major-leaguer Chad Curtis
Chad Curtis, who spent parts of 10 seasons in the majors, is being investigated for "inappropriate touching" of students at the Michigan high school where he volunteers.
MLive.com reports that Curtis, who is a substitute teacher and volunteer weight-room attendant at Lakewood High School in Michigan, has not yet been charged but is the subject of a formal investigation. Pending the outcome of the investigation, Curtis has been suspended from his duties. He had been slated to take over as Lakewood's head football coach later this year.
Curtis, 43, spent parts of 10 seasons in the bigs with the Angels, Tigers, Dodgers, Indians, Yankees, and Rangers. He's perhaps best known for, in his Yankee days, hitting a walk-off home run in Game 3 of the 1999 World Series and then snubbing interviewer Jim Gray in the moments afterward.
